The guys in this band contacted me to share their new music. At first I was a little hesitant probably due to the name itself but then I listened and was instantly blown away. Strange Her are an explosive indie rock band that would please fans of As Cities Burn, House of Heroes, Emery, The Classic Crime, Anberlin and maybe even a little Silversun Pickups and Funeral for a Friend. Good stuff and uplifting. Songs of substance.… Continued →

(Actual album cover in review. Edited Cover provided by our friends at JesusFreakHideout ) The southern emo/screamo/rock/alternative/however you decide to classify them boys have returned after three years from their last full length release. You’ve read the controversy, you’ve seen it, and so what is there to say about this album? Well, a lot. “Is This The Real Life” sets the general tone of Eve; and that is mellow and thoughtful. The lyrics of the song at first seem to be rather ambiguous in form of stream-thought.… Continued →

Regardless of the direction they are taking their band from here on out, you can hear their two newest songs below and debate what you think musically of their latest tunes.… Continued →

Emery have had their fair share of problems recently with tour vehicles breaking down but the band keeps pressing on like the solid road warriors they are. The band bought a really old bus and are currently in the process of renovating it. As you can see from the LIVE video they filmed yesterday, they still have quite a ways to go (no AC, and in the heat of West Coast). So this is where we call come in.… Continued →

Emery has launched an Indiegogo campaign to fund their 7th full-length record. The campaign goal is $50,000, and only a day after launching it is already 65% funded at the time of this publication. Considering their last campaign was 222% funded, it shouldn’t be long before the goal is met.

Check out the fabulous new song titled “In Your Pocket” from Devin Shelton off his upcoming album “Sensation” due out January 6th 2017. This catchy album full of R&B type melodies and instrumentation will please fans of Bruno Mars, Justin Timberlake, Devin Shelton’s prior work, The Postal Service, and even Emery. I’ve been listening to the album since Bad Christian sent it to me and I’m definitely enjoying it. Pre-order/purchase right here. … Continued →

While there will always be those people who refuse to move on with Emery and hang on to their more vintage stylings, I believe that “You Were Never Alone” is the most robust and fully rounded album the band have offered to date

Abandon Kansas are back with their second full length album, 'Alligator' on Bad Christian Music. 'Alligator' offers a sundry cornucopia of lush musicianship and emotions. I think there’s truly something for everyone and every mood on this record.

We Do What We Want is full of a raw intensity that makes this record not only Emery’s heaviest but also their least polished, cracking at the seams with power and energy.

I bolded many, many words in this review, especially the word Emery, which was put in bold letters very often, so if you can forgive that, then please read this early review of their upcoming release
